My airbag light started doing this:

Blink 13 times in succession, pause, then continue.

History:
12/12: Checked in. They have to run diags (13-point process).

12/13: Cause: unit the buckle connects to in driver seat malfunctioned. They need to order part. Local areas do not have it, they contact NISSAN parts USA. They give me a rental until 12/15.

12/14: They now tell me the parts backordered till freakin' January 14!!! :mad: That means the part will be sent ~1/16, so it won't arrive and be installed till probably 1/20.

The silver lining, the dealer will pay for a comparable rental (Durango SLT) for the duration. I had to stick up for the comparable rental too, they were going to give me an Impala instead.

Anyone else having/had a problem with replacing this unit? Is it really so freakin' rare that it took this long?! Maybe I ought to ask Santa for one to speed this crap along...

:)

A couple observations...Durango SLT vs. Armada LE:

The Durango's fog lights seem to have better spread, penetration/brightness, AND they will stay on even if you turn off the main headlights. The Armada turns off all lights if the main headlights are off.

The Durango has lumbar adjust for the driver AND passenger. The Armada provides a driver-only lever.

I dont know if it was just my ears or not, but the Durango's no-name stereo system seemed to be just as good (if not better :eek: ) than the Armada's Bose. And w/ the Durango, I wasnt experiencing the body panel rattle and mirror vibration I've come accustomed to in my LE. :mad:

You can upgrade the fogs on the Armada for $20 to be just as bright as the durangos with silverstar 893 bulbs.
The fogs can be set up to work the same way.
The lumbar is a Durango advantage.
The Armada's BOSE probably is worse than the Durangos. There are no name brand stereos in any production car. All are "assembled" by the name brand, not designed or produced. This includes Rockford, Mark Levinson, BOSE, Infinty, etc. All are just a way for a car maker to put a brand name on the stereo in the car for marketing purposes. If you want a BOSE, you need to go aftermaket. Our BOSE decks are actually Panasonic.

BTW, BOSE stuff sucks anyway.
I used to install and it was always a joke.
BOSE stands for
Buy Other Stereo Equipment, BLOSE, or No highs, No lows, must be BOSE.

This includes home stuff. They use cheap $5 drivers and well engineered porting to emphasize certain frequencies that are pleasing to the human ear. They really have very little clarity and a poor frequency curve and are way over priced. Probably 5 times for what you get vs. competition. They do however have a great marketing campaign. ;)

You're killing me, please don't even use the D word in the same sentence as Armada. A couple classes down from the Armada.

But my real question is, how did you get all those wierd characters in your name.

Yes! I've always thought the same thing about Bose. All marketing. Same with most other "mid-Fi stuff.. My stereo sucks. When I "FF" the CD, it doesn't even resuce the volume (at least for a few seconds). That's great for the speakers and my ears.

My airbag light started doing this:

Blink 13 times in succession, pause, then continue.

History:
12/12: Checked in. They have to run diags (13-point process).

12/13: Cause: unit the buckle connects to in driver seat malfunctioned. They need to order part. Local areas do not have it, they contact NISSAN parts USA. They give me a rental until 12/15.

12/14: They now tell me the parts backordered till freakin' January 14!!! :mad: That means the part will be sent ~1/16, so it won't arrive and be installed till probably 1/20.

The silver lining, the dealer will pay for a comparable rental (Durango SLT) for the duration. I had to stick up for the comparable rental too, they were going to give me an Impala instead.

Anyone else having/had a problem with replacing this unit? Is it really so freakin' rare that it took this long?! Maybe I ought to ask Santa for one to speed this crap along...
I have flickering seatbelt light. And the airbag light. My mexhysaid it was the clock spring I replaced it my self and had him set the position. Now the airbag light is on again. He never suggested it was the seatbelt sensor... Did that fix it?

I have flickering seatbelt light. And the airbag light. My mechanic said it was the clock spring. I replaced it my self and had him calibrate/ set the position. Now the airbag light is on again.
